Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal concocted one of the most attractive T20 innings on Friday in the final of the Bangladesh Head Class (BPL) 2019. Tamim's heroics with the bat in Dhaka helped Comilla Victorians beat three-time champions Dhaka Dynamites by 17 runs and win their second title.

Tamim hit an unbeaten 141 from just 61 balls, his first century in the BPL that had 11 sixes and 10 limits. 

Tamim's 141 was the second most elevated score in a T20 competition final and it helped the Imrul Kayes-drove Comilla Victorians post 199. He additionally turned into the first Bangladesh batsman to hit in excess of 10 sixes in a T20 coordinate.

Tamim indicated little admiration to any semblance of Andre Russel, Shakib Al Hasan, and Rubel Hossain as he scored vigorously against the big young men of Dhaka Dynamites. 

Big weapons bomb as Dhaka implode after strong begin 

Dhaka Dynamites seemed as though they would render Tamim's uncommon thump in vain when Upul Tharanga and Rony Talukdar went up against the Victorians' bowling assault after Sunil Narine was run out in the absolute first chunk of their 200-run pursue. 

Tharanga and Talukdar sewed a 102-run stand in just 8.4 overs previously Thisara Perera got the wicket of his Sri Lankan colleague with a slower ball. Once the big organization was broken, the Dynamites imploded as any semblance of Shakib, Andre Russel, and Kieron Pollard were expelled economically. 

Talukdar hoped to keep the Dynamites in the chase yet he was run out (for 66 off 38 balls) after a mistake with Pollard in the center. 

The Dynamites felt the weight of chasing a big aggregate in the final as their seasoned campaigners, including any semblance of Shakib, Pollard and Russell, were not able get moving. 

Wahab Riaz shone for the champions with figures of 3/28 while Mohammad Saifuddin and Thisara Perera got two wickets each. There were several expensive run outs that brought the ruin of the Dynamites. Bangladesh Premier League Win BPLT20 Champions 2019 by Comilla Victorians Congratulation to Comilla Victorians

How Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, and Shakib Al Hasan responded after the final 

Tamim: "All through the competition I had begins, however I neglected to convert them. In this way, I surmise, I spared my best for the last. We planned the innings truly well. They had 2 world class bowlers in the type of Narine and Shakib and we didn't take risks against them. It was a breathtaking wicket and at one point even 200 was looking less however I generally realized we will be back in the match once we take two or three wickets. The wickets of Pollard and Russell were extremely important. " 

Imrul Kayes: "Tamim is an incredible player and he demonstrated his character today. Everyone will recall his thump in the final. At a certain point I was stressed as we didn't bowl well in the powerplay. Be that as it may, we returned strongly in the center overs. Riaz and Perera were brilliant for us in that stage." 

Shakib Al Hasan: "It was a decent round of cricket. 199 was continually going to be troublesome however we got off to an incredible begin. We lost the force after eleventh over and continued losing wickets. Next couple of months will be extremely important for our cricket. Tamim played truly well. We can remove a ton of positives from this competition. We are thankful to our supporters, ideally, they will continue supporting them." Bangladesh Premier League Win BPLT20 Champions 2019 by Comilla Victorians
